    I'm not really a big gamer, but on Facebook I do keep up with my Mafia Wars.
    Recently I have been searching on Google for MMORPG's and a lot of results show up, some have linux clients.

    Fedora has a games project going on.
    From browsing the search results it's not easy to tell which direction to go, so how about you?

    Do you play (online) games on Linux systems and which?

    I love Urban Terror (fps) and UFO Alien Invasion (based on old DOS turn-based UFO).
    P.S., I've reviewed some 40 Linux games or so, you can take a look if you like ...

    I've just noticed you have. Linux has a lot going for it with games. As you mention now less Wine...as a lot mostly have installers, and the best is you really can't beat something that's free and has a good following.

    Thank you for the game reviews, Mrk!

    Last night I searched for online games, figuring that it offers platform independent joy and if I play Mafia Wars, there might be more out there on the internet.

    I made an Online Game Collection at delicious.com.

    There seems to be a lot of good first person shooter games for linux (which is a bit scary since we are all supposed to be unpopular geeks).
    I just downloaded smokin' guns, a western (U.S.) shooter game. If anyone is using Ubuntu you may want to check out this site.
